PEE Poll: Is Futurama your favorite show?
It has always been my favorite show since I first saw it.
It used to not be, but then I got into it.
I like it, but it's never been my favorite.
It used to be, but not anymore.

Star Trek, Firefly, Farscape... My favourite shows tend to be live-action serious sci-fi.

Hello everybody.

Thank you for the kind words.  I really appreciate the warm welcome I've received from fellow members of PEEL.

My first post on page two was a culmination of how I really felt about Futurama.  More often than not, I feel I can express myself the best by writing.  I am glad its received positive reception, and I look forward to participating in discussions on PEEL.

I have several favorites, and Futurama is one of them.  I don't have a favorite for something as broad as television shows, I just have a core clump of shows that I love to death.

A few months back I caught Futurama on Comedy Central and, with nothing else on television, decided to give it another "chance".  As fate may have it, and it was probably divine influence, the episode "Godfellas" was on.  I watched and nearly passed out from laughing the entire episode.  I thought that it was pure genius how Bender played the role of "God" to the inhabitants on his body as he streamed across the galaxy.  On top of that, the episode had a rather interesting moral that further added to the already genius plot.  I saw my friend again, mentioned to him about that episode and said "Hey man, I caught a new Futurama episode and it rocked!" but he was confused - that wasn't a new episode, in fact, it was a much older episode from Futurama's previous life on Fox.  Feeling like a buffoon, I shrugged it off and decided to explore the series a bit more.

Such a great episode to get started with. That's one of the ones I would show to pretty much anyone to show them how great this show is. Probably throw in Roswell too.

Also, your post is good and you should feel good!

Seriously, epic first post. Glad you're a new fan. I think your experience also speaks to something a lot of us probably haven't experienced with Futurama for a while (if ever, depending on when we started watching), which is that shows often just seem a lot better when we're able to devour them all at once. Over the past year and a half, I've watched several shows straight through - The Office, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Flight of the Conchords, 30 Rock, among others - and noticed that when watching through all the past seasons, I very rarely found episodes that I just didn't dig, and even in those rare cases I was rarely bothered by it, because I could always just start the next one right after. It was only when I finally caught up and was watching the newest episodes as they were on, week-to-week, that I found myself being more analytical and placing more hopes on any given episode. In this case of Futurama, I definitely recall being disappointed with a few episodes in the original run that I found myself liking more later, and seeing a lot of negative reviews that kind of slowly gave way to praise as the years went on and more people were seeing them nightly on Adult Swim. There weren't crazy expectations attached to each episode.
